There is a gasp Then the audience fall silent, Staring with disbelieving eyes. This actor, who has ruled the stage for years, Bringing laughter, wringing tears; Winning awards along the way For almost every film or play, Has made them hold their breath before But not just walking through the door. Puzzled by the crowd’s reaction, He hesitates for just a fraction. The leading lady, with a frown, Offers him her dressing gown. And then he notices what’s wrong. He’s forgotten to put his costume on. 10th May 2021 The Audience Falls Silent contest Sponsor - Kai Michael |Neumann

Good one, Bryn. I loved the ending, which came as a bit of a surprise. No director or stage manager to warn him??? Great entry for Kai's contest!
